Hope

Hope I shut out sorrow. Drowning in my rainy days, I hide from the hurt... close my eyes to what has been; close my eyes on what's to come. Yet, past my sorrow, somehow I know they will come; new flowers of joy will spring from my lonely tears... to bask in sunshine again. Sandra M.

'Being bipolar is like a rose'

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its color is more vibrant
than all the other roses'!

It may never be
part of a "perfect" bouquet,--
but its rich pigment
can be a precious paint for
Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa."

Alas, it may not
attract the most "honeybees"
in the wilds of life,--
but its petals can be crushed
to make the finest perfumes.

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its bouquet is more fragrant
than all the other roses'!

A New Day

    



Away all sorrow

   Move swiftly into the past

      Today's a new day

        Wanting only happiness

            Tomorrow is further still...

Faith, Hope and Love


                                                have faith in yourself,
                                         then hope will follow life through,
                                                 making life complete, 
                                              the driving force is loving
                                              needed for peaceful living.

Heart's Sanctuary

leaves change colour
twirling to the cold ground
in submission--
place a bright orange leaf
beside an old photograph

a dash of colour
to highlight warm memories--
autumn winds howl
without breaching 
heart's sanctuary

fragile rice papers

fragile rice papers
cling to a thrashed wicker wall
and silent gazes
kanji-stained blots become buds
some bloom into ureshii

A Reason for Hope

There is so much hate
And so much malevolence
At times I despair;
At the end of an alley
Blades of grass by the garbage.

Aventuras Borradas

Cierra mi pensar.
Perdido, silencioso,
Esperanzado.
Azares anulados,
Hazañas suprimidas...

One

Spring marks no return
to life from sleep, no rebirth
of something long dead...

but here rises a new hope
from the ashes of the world.

Rejoice (Tanka)

Rejoicing in life
soul’s jubilation singing
raising of voices

Praises of joy unto Him
uplifting mortal spirit



Comments:    The Japanese tanka dating back to the 5th Century has a format of 
five lines:  the first has five syllables. The second has seven syllables. The third 
has five syllables.  The forth and fifth lines have seven syllables each. The 
pattern is 5/7/5/7/7 for a total of thirty-one syllables.  This one is about rejoicing.

Breathed into my soul at birth
Keeps hope, faith and love,

Dying Daily

I must die each day  
die to remorse and regret
die to yesterday
then I must rise up and walk
then I must take up my cross

Acts 3:6
Matthew 16:24

Darkest poorest land
Where power and pride blinds men

Where is that candle that lights?

Nature's Loneliness

                              Cherry blossom tree
                       swaying by an ice glazed pond 
                               lonely skylark perched
                       singing a song for it's flock
                       a chill wind blows alone he waits.

Christmas in July Alone

A summer abroad
Homesick for my family
Silent nights abound

Hope In The Desert

                                    









                                    Desert thunderheads
                                 clap loudly over the plains
                                  giving parched lands hope
                             watching skies from red rock cave
                                ancient chief sighs with relief
